More on Kara. Top: Kara outside. 2nd: Tall, beautiful, radiant smile, good gene pool these folks. 3rd bridesmaids and matron. 4th: The flower girls practicing a dance for the reception. Last: A funky terrarium made in a pair to flank the head table. Kara and co. had a very clear color story and style. As a designer you'd better track dress color trends, it will make life much easier for everyone. Good job guys.
A lovely and elegant Kara Hunton at St. Peter Church. She is carrying a bright bouquet of orange unique rose, cherry-oh roses and orange lilies with an aqua wrap. The color scheme continued throughout the entire ceremony and reception. I will show more photos but this one deserved its own post. Thanks Kara and company.
White roses and stephanotis with black pins. Anther simple, sleek, simple beautiful bouquet. The black pins in the stephanotis and tux-style wrap help give this standard combination a neo-classiccal twist. Black and white is versatile, classy and cool. What I like to call an after 6:00 bouquet.
Zinnias, phlox, crepe myrtle, seedum ( which makes a great armature,) echinacea, mint and a few balloon flowers arranged in a vase. I, just love how it looks like it grew there. I did however put it in my kitchen.
My first post on this blog was a beautiful arrangement of zinnias and cockscomb taken by Lisa Suits. Though Lisa takes a better picture than me and the Westphalia Trading Co.'s zinnias are flawless, this design has something great going for it. It's from the backyard and there's more.
Some images from a trip to the Butterfly House at Faust Park in St. Louis, Missouri. A great place though it was a bizzillion degrees with 7,000% humidity. There are lots of well kept tropical plants and from 70 to 80 species of butterflies. Top is a beautiful swallowtail that I haven't been able to identify, all that i know is that it isn't native to Missouri (this is new territory for me, I would be glad for any help.) Second we have a Thoas Swallowtail native to Central and South America. Bottom, just so you know I'm not going completely lepidopterist on you is a hibiscus schizopetalus, a very fitting name.
Just to stress the beauty of bouquets with few elements I will post the rose and calla lily combo almost every time I make it. Presentation bouquets of calla lilies for the bridesmaids and a clutch of fragrant white roses and mini callas for the bride. Clean and classic.
